Marset from David Village Lighting
Marset began in 1942 as a family foundry company in the city of Barcelona. In 1965 they decided to dedicate themselves exclusively to manufacturing lighting products, and since then they have established themselves as one of the most high-regarded companies in the field. As a company they have never been afraid to take risks and whilst one may observe the influence of contemporary design in their products, they have always pushed the boundaries of the conventional. Marset's design team is as international as any company can boast of and included designers from Chile, Germany, Finland and Spain. The variety of backgrounds is reflected in their eclecticism of their catalogue. Every product is unquestionably unique; from the vintage to the futuristic, from the subtle to the bold. Each design is certain to lend personality to any room it is placed in.

Featured – Marset Discoco
The Marset Discoco is a beautiful design when either on or off. Its complex simplicity provides direct downwards illumination and creates soft shadows which exude from all around the shade.
Both attractive and decorative, the Discoco has been one of Marset’s most popular designs since its release in 2009 with it incorporating a Scandinavian design with a Mediterranean style.
The Marset Discoco collection includes a wall, ceiling and suspension version. Each version is made from a collection of polycarbonate discs in white, black and gold, matt grey or matt beige. The suspension has five sizes with the largest having a 132cm diameter, and the smallest being 35cm in diameter, perfect for over a dinning table or in a living area.

Marset New In 2016
Marset Lighting is about more than just lamps, they seek to produce innovative and clever designs which are both refined and contemporary. They dedicate their time and effort to create first-class designs which create atmospheres with character and ensuring the flawless completion of each product.
Marset have released their 2016 collections and below we introduce them to you!
Theia Table & Floor
The Theia collection is named after the Greek Goddess – mother of the sun, the moon and the dawn. Theia has two faces which change simply by swivelling the fixture around. The design by Mathias Hahn can be pointed toward you for use as a reading lamp or towards a wall or object, creating a subtle, indirect light which immediately warms the atmosphere. Because Theia’s metal lampshade is totally opaque, the swivelling movement totally shifts the perception of the lamp. The design is created with two half-spheres, one placed horizontally and the other vertically, these elements make it possible for the light to be simultaneously projected, reflected and absorbed by objects creating a visual to enjoy. The Theia collection has also recently been awarded the NYCxDesign award presented by Interior Design magazine and ICFF. The awards celebrate outstanding talent across major areas of design such as architecture, interiors, furnishings, lighting, and technology.
Aura Wall Light
The Aura wall light was inspired by traditional carafes which were common household items for years. This decorative lamp provides outstanding light while turned on but stands out beautifully while off. A humble glass carafe imprinted on the eye of its designer was the start of the design process. Both a rational and contemporary design the Aura uses LED technology to achieve efficiency and subtlety. The wall lamp comes with opalescent, transparent or coloured glass which allows the light to bathe the wall and create a luminous effect without harshness.
Soho 38 LED
The Soho collection has grown with Marset adding a new smaller version of the pendant, ceiling and floor Lamp in both interior and exterior. The Soho lamp is presented as a statement piece is recognition of the lamps traditionally used in markets, tavern and cafeterias. Whereas before the collection was available in either a diameter of 57cm or 112cm it is now also available in a small size measuring 38cm in diameter. The new smaller size makes it more appropriate for smaller spaces and increases the overall versatility of the fixture. The existing colour range—black, grey and translucent white—is now joined by two new tones: sand and sky blue.
Pleat Box now available in LED
The Pleat Box is the result of the first collaboration between Xavier Mañosa, a master ceramist from Barcelona, the mashallah design studio in Berlin, and Marset. The inspiration behind the Pleat Box suspension is the sophisticated combination between a digitally designed crease in a piece of cloth and a silhouette that is applied to a ceramic base. The interior of the shade is available in either brilliant white enamel, which enhances the luminous light or, 24K gold, which generates an extremely warm light.
Concentric Wall Light
The Concentric wall light is visually striking both on or off however, when turned on in the dark is when it becomes its most impressive and dynamic. The way the light vibrates when you view it creates an almost hypnotic effect. The design is inspired by the sunlight which enters through the window of an aeroplane reflecting vibrant colours onto the passengers clothing. The Concentric collection is based on an artistic endeavour to highlight this interaction between light and the reflection of colour, as each white circular panel has a different colour on its back. The collection comes in three different sizes and three different colour combinations: the Corona model with neon colours, the Major model with warm colours, and the Minor model with cool colours.
This year Marset have added to their Ginger collection with a new, smaller suspension lamp, a portable table lamp, another version of the wall lamp with a moveable arm, and three different sizes of flush-mount wall lamps. The collection is created from wood; a material which is hard to mould. The combination of sheets of wood, paper and resins pressed together under high pressure achieve a laminate which appears almost entirely flat. The new smaller suspension with a diameter of 20cm is ideal for areas that need a smaller focus point of light and the wall version is perfect for lighting up beside a bed. Thanks to a rechargeable lithium-ion battery the new portable table version allows spaces to be independently lit with no need for wires. The interior of the shade is available in not just white but in an oak and wenge finish, creating different shades of light.
